The blog

Hi! I’m Jeraldine. I am an average PMET who leads a minimalistic lifestyle and lives in a 4-room HDB flat.

Many young adults face challenges such as coping with the high cost of living; navigating the issues faced in our careers; providing the best for their families and giving back to society

To help my peers, I’ve dedicated this blog to discuss these challenges and to advocate for solutions that create a better Singapore for us all.

Giving back

Our monthly food distribution session at Fengshan

Over the years, I’ve learned that social change can only be brought about when people walk the talk.

My journey in advocacy began in 2013 when I launched a petition to help the elderly in Singapore by reintroducing Chinese dialects on local television and radio.

At present, I conduct house visits and a monthly food distribution program for lower-income residents in Bedok as part of my involvement with the Workers’ Party.

I also donate monthly to charities that support causes I care about – lower income families, the elderly and the environment such as Thye Hua Kuan Moral Charities and the Garden City Fund.

My life outside blogging

Other than volunteering & blogging, I enjoy cooking; working out; travel; photography; scuba diving; taking care of plants at home and playing with my pet rabbits and love bird. 

In my day job, I work in technology where I help businesses in Singapore with digital transformation. Currently, I am pursuing a certification in Digital Strategies by Columbia Business School to deepen my understanding on on how businesses can thrive in a digital era. 

I graduated from Nanyang Technological University where I studied journalism and public policy. I am also an alumnus of Victoria Junior College.
